GOOD FENCES - HAPPY NEW YEAR - Walk to Quarr Abbey

I know I mentioned that when I arrived on the Isle of Wight, I walked to Quarr Abbey, well today I am showing you the fences and gates I photographed along the way. However firstly I wish you ALL A VERY HAPPY  NEW YEAR and may 2015 be a wonderful healthy and peaceful year.  OK let's go on our walk.






The old abbey ruins.







The abbey received lottery money and they have improved the paths, fences, access and have put numerous seats around the property.

 I hope you enjoyed coming with me on this walk.

I am linking this post with GOOD FENCES.

  7. this might just be my most favorite fence post EVER... I would so much love to walk this walk. I love that house in the first photo, it has been in my imagination from all the historical novels I read in the past. LOVE the pigs in the mud and the tail in the fence and the man in the garden and the numbered sheep. awesome post.

  16. Oh, I love the old ruins and the history of this Monastery. What a treat to walk with you and see numbered sheep, marching pigeons and pig butt ... also the pigs have very cute faces when we finally see one :) I love history and old places and this one is particularly interesting. The current Abbey is magnificent. Thank you, Margaret for another wonderful day spent at your side ... a special day being the new year. Wishing you the best in this new year and looking forward to learning and witnessing wonders through your lens. Happy New year, Margaret ...
